Father and son, padre e figlio

Father 
It’s not time to make a change, 
Just relax, take it easy. 
You’re still young, that’s your fault, 
There’s so much you have to know. 
Find a girl, settle down, 
If you want you can marry. 
Look at me, I am old, but I’m happy. 


I was once like you are now, and I know that it’s not easy, 
To be calm when you’ve found something going on. 
But take your time, think a lot, 
Why, think of everything you’ve got. 
For you will still be here tomorrow, but your dreams may not. 

Son 
How can I try to explain, when I do he turns away again. 
It’s always been the same, same old story. 
From the moment I could talk I was ordered to listen. 
Now there’s a way and I know that I have to go away. 
I know I have to go. 

Father 
It’s not time to make a change, 
Just sit down, take it slowly. 
You’re still young, that’s your fault, 
There’s so much you have to go through. 
Find a girl, settle down, 
if you want you can marry. 
Look at me, I am old, but I’m happy. 


Son 
All the times that I cried, keeping all the things I knew inside, 
It’s hard, but it’s harder to ignore it. 
If they were right, I’d agree, but it’s them you know not me. 
Now there’s a way and I know that I have to go away. 
I know I have to go.
